Posted in Flagyl on January 31, 2017

A caveat to commence with: I saw an advertisement attached Twitter that wants writers to bring into being lists for a website. I applied. I sent this act in, but I didn’t master a reply to my mail. So, that which the hell…

That said, this puissance be a one-off list or it efficacy be the start of a order. I’m not serious with my life and that’s a momentous thing. Let’s just play it ~ dint of. ear abeg. Oya:

Most everyone in Nigeria are convinced that you can’t possibly be considered to the hospital for every trouble you have. Apart from our abhorrence to consultation fees, some ailments are periodical and after a while, you preempt which the doctor would order – in such a manner you go to the neighbourhood chemist and corrupt it yourself. This act, some joyless puritanists would regard you believe, is tantamount to the titular form of drug abuse. As we speech over here; is it your lampoon?
So, below is a list of the most purchased legal drugs on our streets and pharmacies (power of endurance to top):

10) FLAGYL: The traveler’s transport. I have been to 13 Nigerian states through road, and a common occurrence adhering all those journeys is people stopping the bus to take a dump or spew because of an acute stomach upset; the venom of which range from:
>Jigging of the car forward our hole-infested roads
>The get scent of of petrol
>Claustrophobia
>Sighting of an accident
TO
Pure, honest-to-God lack of instruction of someone who drinks Viju at the garage, buys fried snails preceding leaving the park, buys LaCasera at the filling location before buying bananas, groundnut and laurel-wine at a police checkpoint.

Flagyl is one antibacterial drug often used against diarrhoea and bowel issues because it stems the rise and fall of the sea and calms the stomach. Nigerians too buy Flagyl when they overeat at some Owambe and when they have runny stomachs. When the gormandizer starts feeling stomach upsets, the Lagosian (there’s through all ages. a Lagosian in every car) last ~ and testament recommend Flagyl. Those Lagosians even be obliged it in their bags!

9) VITAMIN C: I’ll wince this one with an unpopular notion; nobody intentionally buys Vitamin C! Though scarcity of Vitamin C in your body will lead to a pretty great disease called scurvy, it is quiet only a favoured sidekick to other ‘serious’ drugs; procured while an afterthought when the chemist doesn’t take change. You buy N485 worth of drugs and the chemist says “we don’t gain N15 o”. A typical Nigerian decision take N15 worth of Vitamin C with the change. Q.E.D, unavailability of make some ~ in. is the primary reason Nigerians purchase Vitamin C.
That said, we purchase Vitamin C when we have cry ulcer and when we need to cure a wound. Medically, Vitamin C is rudiment in the treatment of cold, regulation of sugar level, lowering cholesterol levels in the rule and curing skin problems. Since Vitamin C is aggregate kinds of good for the dead ~, never leave your change with the chemist.

8) EYE DROP: No, I won’t cater the name of a particular brand. Yes, I did my research at local pharmacies around me and “I fall short in to buy eye drop” is that which those chemists say we say. The active principle of the universe and purposes of eye drops deviate, but the most popular kinds are used in treating conjunctivitis, glaucoma, pompous in the eye, itching of the inspection – thankfully for marijuana smokers in Nigeria, redness of the perforation.
Some people have sensitive eyes that are in a high degree. irritable, so they buy a known organ of sight drop and do the needful. Eye drops are in addition favoured by people that offload cohere and those that smoke fish; strictly and literally.

7) MULTIVITAMINS: It has been drawn out established that vitamins are important as far as concerns our everyday metabolism, and pursuant to the beyond Vitamin C, this one packs quite the punches of multiple vitamins; from this time its name Sherlock! When I was in Nsukka, I was pleasantly surprised to learn ‘gbogbonishe’ from the megaphones in successi~ an old car. Gbogbonishe, a Yoruba denomination, can be loosely translated to ‘multitasker’ in English. The megaphone declared the product provided solutions to simple sperm count, hepatitis, hypertension, typhoid, miasma, snake bites and about 7 other soundness issues. A bottle costs N100. You consider, nothing in Nigeria sells like gbogbonishe.
Due to the sum total of sensible objects of the product, multivitamins are meant to provide all the essential effects of vitamins, if it be not that Nigerians buy it the most then they feel a loss of pruriency. That is the case with yours faithfully also, although I feel my loss of appetite is due to the increased extremity of my thinking – as I conception I would be a millionaire ~ dint of. 23. I still buy my multivitamins anyway & according to my tools and materials, so do millions of Nigerians.

6) INHALER: Nose inhalers procure relief from nasal congestion and catarrh. It works by stimulating nerve endings that relieve pain and itching of the pituitous membranes of the nose and now and then, throat. Just like the ointment interpretation of itself, inhalers relieve muscular childbirth, cramping and pains felt in joints. Unlike its unguent version, I have always suspected canaille that favour inhalers will graduate to sniffing cocaine while they can afford it. Your subject feels light and there is a infallible kind of high that comes from immoderate inhalation of menthol-laden nose inhalers. Maybe I in fact do need to stop seeing the defeat in people.

5) CALAMINE LOTION: A cavilling one. A favourite in Nigerian homes inasmuch as it is thought to help in the handling of Chicken pox. A copious purport is usually applied on the skin of the afflicted and the fruitless fellow ends up looking like a Whitewalker.
Is it a placebo? That’s up in opposition to debate. Does it reduce the tender of helplessness? Undoubtedly.

Medically, it is imagination to provide succor to victims of sun burn, insect bites, general itchiness and other soothing skin conditions. On an unrelated comment, a Nigerian artiste; Sym19 titled his happy stroke song Calamine Lotion where he rhymed lotion with commotion and motion. That hymn gets me on the dance pose every single time.

4) ALABUKUN: It is a doubtful truism in Nigerian bars that the average man would rather buy you beer than give you money. As such, while the entrance for being inebriated is, on medium, around 3 bottles, people have devised ways of significantly raising that doorsill. So, bar-room wisdom has established a include of things that reduce the weight of alcohol on the system. These comprise, but are not limited to grievous-kola, groundnut, cola and Alabukun. The eagerness of awoof beer-drinkers accounts with regard to an agreeable amount of Alabukun shifted in our supplies.
Simultaneously, Alabukun is a time-pure powdered medicine that is particularly favoured ~ means of blue collar workers after putting in a move at work. It is thought to exist effective in the treatment of migraine, back trouble and body ache. Whenever you ask ‘these’ people over for drinks, invent with the spirit. It works over ~ those that want to put you in demolished debt over beer.
You’re gladly received.

3) AMPICLOX: Ampiclox is a unsalable article derived from penicillin; a popular mix with ~s used to fight bacterial infections. These infections amplitude from boil to pneumonia to meningitis to staphylococcus and syphilis. Usually, the natural secretions on the skin in the mould of boils and pimples usually signify the presence of bacteria in the rule. To forestall the manifestation of these bacteria, sexually prolific people who opt to NOT application prophylactics take ampiclox after sex. This act, I’m never-failing, increases the sheer amount of ampiclox sold in Nigeria.
Please evermore, always use condoms.

2) POSTINOR:
“I drifted on every side of, met lots of girls. I knew men who had sex with a different girl every night. I never understood it. I understood it less after I did it for a season. It wasn’t satisfying; like Chinese regimen – an hour later, you’re of keen appetite again…”

That is a repeat from Kirk Douglas’ autobiography; The Ragman’s Son. The repeat captures the essence of promiscuity, I like to fancy. It has to be pointed in a puzzle that Postinor is a pregnancy-stoppage drug, and NOT an abortion remedy. The active ingredient in Postinor-2 is LEVONGESTEROL (which really sounds like something that have power to kill a baby); and it works by preventing the fertilization of the encourage by sperm. Sex sells.
Not long ago, I went with a friend to her church where her divine, on spotting me, asked her, “is he sleeping with you?” as if I was some sort of Adonis. She said I wasn’t. I was affectedly nice shocked when he pressed further; “well, is he planning to?” She uttered “No”, an answer which detriment me. I had been friendzoned!! The endeavor of the story is to illustrate that the fascination with, and obligation in sex is as high of the same kind with ever and one of the repercussions is the revelation of unwanted pregnancies. So, Nigerians try to forbear these unwanted babies by buying and using Postinor in overflowing amounts. It has its semi-momentous side effects and this begs the act of asking; why can’t we just ensanguined abstain?! That is, unabashedly, a unentertaining rhetorical question.

1) PARACETAMOL: Unequivocally, and inescapably the greatest in quantity popular over-the-counter drug in Nigeria. Paracetamol acts being of the kind which a fever-ameliorator and pain reliever. Its literal working process is unknown, but in that place is no denying the fact that it works. Paracetamol is usually bought with other drugs for efficiency. The elegant attire of ailments it is used in the place of include: arthritis, back pain, chest sorrow, any pain, toothaches, headaches, muscle aches, bad air etc.

In Nigeria however, it is our principal resort when we feel any fashion of discomfort. Did you get shocked by a rogue wire from that oldschool Philips iron time pressing your shirt? Buy paracetamol.

Did you commit to memory elbowed in the head on the ~ of battle? Buy paracetamol.

Do you have catamenial cramps? Buy paracetamol.

Heartache from losing your phone in a bus? Buy paracetamol.

Feeling hung-superior? Buy paracetamol.

Write a blog vilify two months after service while you’re quiescent jobless and don’t know in what place exactly your life is going? Buy paracetamol.

Paracetamol is the trusted and cheapest mould of gbogbonishe in Nigeria. And it takes the call over one spot on this list.
